Amazing food, We loved the combos and the mango Lassi over there. We visited it atleast thrice in two weeks. This is very well located near a bus stop.

“Well prepared, veggie fare”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

A nice, low key place with a serving counter where the food is served/displayed. The jack fruit curry is a favorite as is the naan. The staff is friendly and happy to explain the different dishes. They do not have any meat dishes, so it may disappoint those looking for chicken tandoori and the like. Added bonus is the large grocery section, which in addition to the Indian items has a large selection of UK brands (brown sauce, PG tips Loose tea, digestives, biscuits, mixes, etc). Some of the stuff is made in commonwealth countries but the brands are familar. Have questions about ingredients? They are happy to help.

“Good Indian Joint”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Samosa House, well located, spacious but unlike many Indian restaurants. It is clubbed with a departmental store. The food is nice & we sat there watching folks shop for Indian groceries. It was not expensive however, it is certainly not a place I would take folks "out for dinner". The lady there was very courteous.

“Tasty and casual vegetarian Indian food. Great value.”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

This place is a weekly staple of my diet. The food is so consistently good that I can't help but keep coming back every week for my Samosa House fix. Everything is vegetarian, and the takeout combo for $9 is often enough food for dinner plus lunch the next day. Most of the employees are incredibly friendly, especially if you're a regular, and they give you an incredibly generous amount of food. I recommend the saag, the chana masala, the aloo curry, the veggie chicken and the garlic naan.
